    'Like' bug

    I'm not sure if it's just my POS internet or my POS laptop I use but 90% of the time when I click like on someones post the like doesn't show up under their name, nor does it add to their likes - but it tells me when I try to click like again that I already clicked like within the last 60 seconds.

    Thanks!

    Clicking "Like" doesn't work every time.

    As nothing happened yet, I guess it can't be fixed :/

    Edit: The 60 seconds message between clicks is not connected with the like function. It's a cheap client sided protection against sending too many requests at once. So whether the like actually worked or not is irrelevant to it, it just checks if you made a request / clicked something (reputation / reports have the same).

    Here's what I usually do when I encounter the bug:
    If the like takes more than 5 secs to arrive, it's most probably timing out. So I page refresh to be able to like again and repeat that until the like has arrived. Page refreshing will kill the 60 seconds timeout between clicks.

    Temporary and annoying solution though.

    Guess I should've used the search function rather than just a quick look on the front page lol

    Thanks for letting me know. Would click like but, you know

    Re: 'Like' bug

    I brought it up a few times, but nothing was done about it T___T

    So I've given up.

    Every time a bug or misfunction comes up, people just say to wait for XF move and I am like....

    This is one of the main reasons I pushed more towards xenforo than staying with vbulletin.

    I'll give you a hint: Push harder.

    It takes anywhere from 2 seconds to 2 minutes to like a post. It is annoying but it has been brought up countless times and nothing has been done about it.

    Why not IPB? :/ Even the default skin is so much elegant. Even though XF is new and cool engine, it still seems like the software belongs in 1990's.

    Is this really a v-bulletin issue though? I go to plenty of v-bulletins in past and it never had this issue. I mean, I prefer xenforo eitherway, but I don't think v-bulletin is the fault here...

    Re: 'Like' bug

    My assumption still is that it's got something to do with this Dragon Byte Search Engine Optimization or what it's called. Seems to be a vB plugin. Had it several times that my like timed out, I page refreshed and after another timeout I landed on the Dragon Byte SEO error screen like shown in this bug report: [RZ] Database error (mysqli_real_connect())

    Pretty sure the like request also runs through some kind of SEO procedure and probably also incapsula. Like @Kimberly I don't think it's the like function itself but something interfering with it.

    Actually I noticed if I press it more then twice some odd reason it takes my thumbs up off but as well an additional like which was put by someone else?
